Serra routs Geibel; Gladiators get crushed
A long bus ride did little to deter coach Bill Cleary and his Serra Catholic girls basketball team.
The Lady Eagles won their fifth straight game in impressive fashion Monday with a 73-12 Section 4-A road win over Geibel.
Senior forward Chelsea Griffiths scored 17 points to lead Serra (5-2, 2-0).
Lady Eagles guard Jaime Tedesco added 14 points with three 3-pointers to help further frustrate Geibel (1-6, 1-1), while Lauren Smith added 10.
After opening the season with a pair of losses, Serra has caught fire and outscored its past five opponents by a combined score of 321-153.
The Lady Eagles return to action with a non section game at Keystone Oaks at 7:30 tonight, before returning home to host Frazier at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
Seton-LaSalle 83, South Allegheny 28 — The Lady Rebels (7-2, 2-0) remained undefeated in section play with an impressive performance, while coach Ashleigh Hays' Lady Gladiators (0-9, 0-3) failed to earn their first victory of the season.
Jackie Tyskiewicz scored a team-high 10 points to lead SA.
